If you slip down on a hard surface, your entire body can be subjected to a forceful impact from the fall. The resulting damage from the impact can cause internal damage, external damage or even both. In some cases, the injury may not even present itself right away. You may feel no pain and think you’re fine, only for down the road to realize something is still wrong.
Description & Process
Slip and Fall accidents are extremely common in the United States with millions occurring each year. They happen when we least expect them. Either by our own negligence or just by chance. More often, slip and falls occur due to a business’s negligence. These injuries can directly affect the nervous system and cause trauma to your ligaments, joints, bones and muscles.
Slip and falls can also cause misalignments through the neck, spine, pelvis and other areas that are invisible to us. Some main causes of slip and fall accidents that involve negligence are uneven walking surfaces, excessively wet floors without warning signs, icy surfaces, and debris being left around the floor and walking areas. Most common results from slip and fall accidents are head injuries, cuts and abrasions, soft tissue injury and broken bones.
